I don't know how many birthdays we have in my family in July, at least 10 I think and it's birthday parties every where all the time, and at the moment we are in one of those periods when everyone turns 0 or 5. I'm not being one of them. Even one of my old cats had her birthday in July, sharing it with my step dad and one of my brother's MIL, I will never forget her date of birth.
I have had a few better days now, but when the weather report starts talking about heavy rains and thunderstorms, I go down again even if I don't want too. It's such a stupied thing to have phobia against or how you put it. Well my new "doc" is nice and evil at the same time and it feels great actually to be able to repeat allt the things I have done at least four times before. LoL Well, I mean it, it does help, at least a little bit.
Ok, enough of boring stuff and on to my card that got saved in the last minute. We have just put up the pool for the year and well, let's just say that water can be splashed very far so my first image got wet and destroyed. Lucky for me I coloured the image twice, one time on white neenah card and the other on the craft version. I wanted to use the white one as it got very vibrant, but it took a swim. At least I had a back up. It's coloured with the pens from Spectrum Noir mainly and a few of the Prisma pencils. Not my normal colouring medium but from time to time it's fun to do something different from what I normally do. The image is one of the newer ones from the Paper Shelter and it's found here.
I did colour this image with another paper pad in mind but didn't like how it looked with the craft. So big dive in to the pile, well enormous pile of 6*6 paper pads. I ended up with a mix of prima papers and one did I ad some sentiment/wording on as it was a bit blend in this mix, but I used a Prima stamp for it, so all Prima anyway. How come that some papers that are stunning are so hard to use on your (read my) creations? They are kind of hard to get together for some reason.
A big bunch of flowers from a bunch of companies has been used as you see. The lovely metal corner and pins are from a blogging friend of mine. Thanks Annelie! The broad lovely lace is from yet another friend of mine, thanks so much Gail. Some half pearls from Bunny Zoe is also added to the mix, and a tiny bow with a left over brown ribbon. The sentiment stamp is a free bee from the lovely people over at Bildmålarna. Thanks for that one too!
Thanks for dropping by!
Love n hugs
